The 3rd Annual ArtPadSF kicked off with an exclusive opening party at the Phoenix Hotel, as over 40 hotel rooms were transformed into art galleries and taken over by curatorial projects. ArtPadSF benefitted the SFMOMA SECA Art Award, which has honored more than 70 Bay Area artists. The night’s festivities included:

Move over, Art Basel Miami. This weekend, San Francisco will give the most important art show stateside a run for its money. artMRKT, ArtPadSF, and SFFAF are setting up shop around the city, and we thought we'd help make it easier to choose among the three, or give you reason to double (or triple) dose on all the art and culture you could possibly handle over the course of a few days. All three fairs kick off with preview parties today and run through Sunday, so start practicing your intellectual art speak now.
